Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Weekly Menu

This week we're trying a few new Crock Pot recipes and celebrating my
Michael's 11th Birthday with a big cookout. It will just be our immediate family since we partied with the gang already. We threw a last minute party yesterday when we figured out it was the best time to get family together. We had Bacon and Onion Potato Salad, a super Bean and Corn salad, which I'll post, a jello salad, rolls, and Sausage Kabobs. The kabobs went over big -- they were Andouille, Cheddar Smoked Sausage, and Jalapeno and Cheddar. I cut each sausage into four pieces, skewered them with onion pieces, and grilled them - yum! The kids and adults loved them. I will definitely do that again.

Lunch: leftovers
Dinner: Chicken Lickin' Good Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Corn on the cob, Cucumber Tomato Salad

Tuesday -- Feast of St. Maximillian Kolbe
Lunch: Mini hot dog wraps and BBQ sauce, Carrot sticks and Ranch dip
Dinner: Chicken Cilantro Enchiladas, Cabbage salad, Polish Doughnuts

Wednesday - the Feast of the Assumption (and my Michael's 11th birthday)

I came here from the Foodie Blogroll, but I'm bookmarking you-- I'm also Catholic, and one of my favorite recipes is the pork chops you're having tonight, so I figure we have a lot in common, LOL! :) Did you know there's a meme on Mondays for your menu planning? See my food blog for the link!

I like how you include the feast days in your menu plan and have foods from the nationality of the saint! Cool idea!
